In July of 2012, the Stafford County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution to establish a commission to create an armed services memorial in Stafford County that would honor the loss of Stafford's brave sons and daughters and their families; provide a place for families and citizens to honor the fallen; and serve as a visible reminder to the public of all the men and women who gave the last full measure of devotion to their country.
The commission worked with Stafford County Public Schools to hold a design competition. Students from each of Stafford's five high schools were invited to submit drawings of their vision of a memorial. The winning design was by Aaron Brown of North Stafford High School, who won a $1,500 scholarship. All of the top five designs will be used by an architect to prepare the final design for the memorial located at the back of the Stafford Courthouse campus.
